News that the fifteenth show in the annual All-Energy series of exhibitions and conferences is to be held in Glasgow, and which opens nine months, has been met with enthusiasm, resulting in half of the available space being reserved or booked by exhibitors from nine countries – Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK.
“We are delighted that there has been such a positive result to the news that we are moving the UK’s largest renewable exhibition and conference to SECC where it will be held Wednesday 6 – Thursday 7 May 2015,” says Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of Reed Exhibitions.
“Our post-event survey of both exhibitors and visitors has shown that a high proportion from north and south of the Border are enthusiastic about the move to Glasgow, indeed the event is tracking ahead of last year so is set to be bigger than 2014.”
Aptly Glasgow will hold its first themed year in 2015 – a Green Year, with All-Energy as one of its showcase events in this programme of city-wide, high profile initiatives all aimed at getting local businesses and communities involved in sustainability. Additionally, the support that the event and all of its participants will receive from Glasgow, including its commitment to help grow attendance and participation from local policy makers, academia, research and industry will ensure All-Energy continues to grow and evolve to best reflect and serve the UK renewables industry.
All-Energy 2014 saw 400+ conference and seminar speakers in over 50 conference, share fair and seminar sessions with over 95 hours of content. Presentations from All-Energy 2014 are online and freely accessible – with videos of some available as well, including the interview with Sir Richard Branson (by Calum Davidson of HIE and Rick Squires of Good Energy), enabling those who attended to re-live the experience; and to help those who didn’t, to catch up on opinions of key stakeholders.
The venue may have changed, but the ethos of All-Energy remains very much the same. It is a show for all forms of renewable and sustainable energy, and the ‘sensible option’ – energy efficiency. The conference will be addressing every sector and the challenges and opportunities each face, and those facing the overall industry. Entry to exhibition and the multi-stream conference will remain free of charge to all with a business/professional interest in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
